Even with 90lbs in my rear air bags I have no arch. Ride is rough. Any body notice how much arch you have. Any way of telling if they are wore out? I have talked to a few spring shops and they all say "that old, just replace them." Also, any body prefer new coils in the front as opposed the OEM with the air bags?
I could be wrong here but I don't think it matters much about the rear leaf springs. I am under the impression that the air bags provide the cushion for the ride, not the springs. I look at the springs as more of a pivot and alignment mechanism for the air bags than anything else.
Hopefully someone with more knowledge will chime in with some definite answers.
